You know the story by now. My mom had a bruise on her breast that refused to heal. She didn’t go to the doctor, because she was too tough to go and she put it off.
I don’t have a mom. My kids don’t have a grandmother.
My mammogram is scheduled for next Wednesday. It is stressful to go every year, because every time I make an appointment, it reminds me that I don’t have a mom. It’s scary. However, if you are a woman over 40, have history of breast cancer in the family, or have a genetic predisposition to it, you need to get an annual mammogram.
This is your nudge. If you’ve been putting this off for whatever reason, make the appointment today.
